Interesting reading

Fridays this year will be about sharing links I think you might find interesting, or even enriching. It might be a blog, article or website but it will always be on our topic so I hope you'll find time to take a look.

Pickles from Norway - without a doubt, my favourite knitting blog. Beautiful photos of amazing creations and many free knitting patterns.

I love this blog. Ivynest is honest and beautiful, which I think is a charming and irresistible combination.

Look at these wonderful party ideas - written at the simple green frugal co-op by Megan from The Byron Life.

Nita on seed saving, and here also at the co-op writing about saving seeds again. Nita writes Throwback at Trapper Creek  and she knows her stuff. For everyone who aims for sustainability in the backyard, especially in a cold climate, you shouldn't miss these posts.

Henderson's chicken breed chart - one of the best practical resources on the web.

I'll write up Hanno's kartoffelpuffer recipe for you on Monday. I've had a few requests. Hanno's really pleased about that and although I've been making kartoffelpuffer for over 30 years, having been taught my his mum, Mrs Hetzel Senior, he's given me his recipe and that's what I'll pass on to you.

Thank you for your kind words, good wishes and wonderful comments during the week. They really gave me a boost as we start off another year together. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
